RE: Generation X

3500 watts , since I assume you have a 30 amp shore power plug. One of the cheaper ones that is also an inverter unit, and therefore quieter would be the Harbor freight. predator

Have just lost Goof, my 13 year old Aussum Shepherd.

I am currently in Knoxville Tn, for a couple of months for cancer treatment, So I cant just drop everything and take him back to the home he loved for burial. I am calling tomorrow about cremation, but is there anything else I should explore? https://i.imgur.com/IqxntaEl.jpg

RE: Gasket/molding issue

Thanks all, I just used some clear silicon I had aboard, a dot every foot or so and scotch tape for overnight.

Gasket/molding issue

On my 2010 Winnebago, there is rubber molding that covers the joint between the upper and lower body panels. The rubber strip on the passenger side from the entry door to the back (about 12 feet) has now come out three or four times. I can push it right back in with just my thumb, but within a few days it starts coming back out. I dont want to replace it with new rubber because it is painted to match the body panel. My first thought is to put a drop of adhesive on the top joining surface every foot of so to stop it from dropping to the bottom of the track (there is maybe a 32nd of an inch of free play) which is how it is coming free. Or is there some rubber conditioner I should use to expand what I am guessing is shrinking rubber from it drying out over time? https://i.imgur.com/On5qEtHl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HOVS71xl.jpg

RE: 2016 Chevy Equinox

According to the Good Sam guide. "Equinox 3,777 65 MPH/None N/A Yes 22/32 $23,495-$32,385 Run engine at the beginning of each day and at each RV fuel stop for 5 minutes. Remove fuse 32 while towing" That said, this guide is not perfect, check the owners manual for verification. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1066509/Chevrolet-Equinox-2016.html

RE: 2010 Cougar Fifth Wheel RV

Could you either read and then tell us what the name/brand or whatever is on the control? A photo would also be helpful.

Comical EV article

It should be seen as a known issue, but this guy wants to drive a Nissan Leaf in Wyoming, and discovers it only takes 15 hours to go 178 miles. https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2022/10/18/electric-nightmare-ev-owner-details-15-hour-nightmare-trek-in-wyoming/

RE: EV charging quandry

"The top demographic of 2019 EV owners are middle-aged white men earning more than $100,000 annually with a college degree or higher...." Another demographic summary showed 28% of EV owners had a Doctoral or professional degree and 35% earned over $200,000. What a bunch of losers, right? LMAOROFL Or going along with the stupidity to keep their local gravy train going,,,,, Who is the fool?

Toed has now shown itself as a n old racist POS by the prior post. Nothing was racist prior to Toeds post.

RE: EV charging quandry

If adoption of EVs will crash the grid, and a crashed grid would make conditions ripe for a civil war; why isn’t faux news promoting the adoption of EVs? :h IT IS

Toed , the real fun part is,,,,,,, If the response is only to the feasibility of the whole project, then all of Kali is out of excuses for its stupidity.

EV charging quandry

One of the main reasons folks that promote EVC's was home charging, and the savings. Now Stanford University has looked into it. And they are saying its the worst way to approach charging. Stanford study So, cant during peak usage, cant overnight, guess Kali is going to tell folks to charge them in Nevada.

RE: Streaming with an iPhone

As a test I bought a cheap phone and set up Visible. Unlimited data, the literature says it may be throttled during busy times, but it hasn't happened to me yet. $30 a month, and it gave us a Verizon phone to offset the ATT ones we had. Will be dropping one of the ATT lines soon and replacing it withthe visible if it keeps working this well.

RE: How many folks want an EV

I think eventually it won't be a choice. If we want something to drive it will be an EV. When it comes to towing we may have to downsize our trailers in order to be able to tow them or take really good care of our current tow vehicles so they last the rest of our lifetime. More and more States are adopting the "California Model" which is outlawing the sale of fossil fueled cars (and most likely pickups) in the next 10-15 years. Tent/Popup trailers will certainly become more prevalent and 14'high, 40' long 5th wheel trailers will most likely disappear or be permanently parked. The reality is that even the commercial truck operators, from local delivery to over the road freight transport, are looking at electric trucks (some even driverless). Rail transport will eventually become like that in Europe and other countries with overhead power wires or locomotives with battery banks to move them in areas with no overhead power. The change is happening regardless of our thoughts or desires. FWIW, I have had a PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid EV) for 5 years now and it's been great. 90+ percent of my driving is on battery and my gasoline expense down an average of $400/month before the recent rise in gasoline cost. Saving even more now. I know Virginias former Governor, a Dem, with the help of a Dem led legislature voted to blindly follow anything Cali did. But last year the Gov and the legislature changed, They are writing the new law to overturn that now. It made the local news just last week. I'm sure other states will follow in the next year or two. Electrics will take over the Northeast,. and large urban areas, but they will be a nightmare in the rural areas.

RE: Lithium crossing the acceptance threshold…

I don't recall a fervent anti-lithium contingent. The issue most had was more that the cost was hard to justify, especially when you had to do other modifications to accommodate the charge requirements. It's getting better but unless you need a large battery bank, it's still hard to justify over 6v golf cart batteries for most users. The only Anti Lithium cries that I recall are about the hypocrisy of the electric car promoters, who ignore the planet damage done by the mining activities for the Lithium, as well as the electric production methods. No matter how you do it, the energy is not free, no matter how much you hope for something else.

RE: Battery charging question.

Have charged them separately, was wondering if charging just one would cause a slow equalization with the other. The charger is good, I have 2, I may make a second plug rather than tearing the scooter apart. Thanks for answering the charge one question.

Battery charging question.

I bought a used mobility chair for M'lady, it runs well, but will not charge from the plug on the column. Fuses are good and I dont have time to sit and troubleshoot right now. It is powered by 2 12 volt deep cycle batteries wired in series. I have tried charging the batteries individually and they accept a charge, and stickers show them to only be a year old. Rather than fight the entire issue now, I was thinking I could connect a small charger to one battery at a time,,,,,,, or maybe just one period. If I slow charge one battery from a pair wired in series, will the other also be charged over time? Or must I set up individual charge points for both? It only gets used once every couple of weeks, so I thought maybe I could have one slowly charge the other?

RE: EV jump start

Run out of juice in DC and see how long it takes to find six volunteers to push your ev a half mile to a charging station. You'll find six willing to take it to a chop shop, or six willing to study it for a year to find a way to subsidize longer extension cords, but to actually voluntarily help you? Naaah, get real.
